THE PEESS. FRIDAY MORNING, MARCH 21, 1873. Bviîry regular attache of the Press is furnished Witb a card certificate countersigned by Stanley T. Pullen, Editor. All railway, steamboat aud bote j managers will confer a favor upon us by demanding credentials of every person claiming to represent our Jour.ial, as we have information that several "bum mers'* are seeking courtesies in the name of the Press, and we have no disposition to be, even pas β vely, a party to such fraud. We do not read anonymous letters and communi cations. The name and address of the writer arc in all cases inJispe ab e, not ncceesarily for publication but as a guarauty of good faith. W i cannot undertake to return or pre erve com munications that are not nseu. Ji Torture au Essential Part of the Death Penalty? Tlie decision of Gov. Dix of New York, in the case of the murderer Foster, is a notifica ti m to all men of homicidal tendencies in ilie «■tnpire State, that the extreme penalty of the law will be enforced. From to-day until the terror of the law has made murder untasli ijnable, or a reaction against the death pen alty has set in once more, the gallows is like ly to be kept busily employed. Nor is it probable that the present tendency toward Unrelenting severity will be confined to the State of New York. The peculiar atrociiy of the Isle of Shoals murder affords an oppor tunity for the revival of the agitation ot the capital punishment question which its advo cates are not likely to neglect. Though the monstrous deed was committed by a foreign er, and the jurisdiction of this State is likely to be a matter of dispute, yet it will be argued that the wonderful recklassueis of that mur iler was the direct result of the compromise policy, with respect to the punishment of murder which p.evalls at present in Maine. It would not be at all surprising, were the present executive of Maine a gentleman less distinguished for humanity, to see the gal lows once more e. ected here. If the people of contiguous States conclude that their only «afety is in a resoit to the gibbet, it will go hard, but some among us will insist on having λ iew, at least, of these great moral spectacles in Maine. If capital punishment is to be restored here, a! it may be without any further legis lation, It is worth while to consider whether hanging by the neck until the criminal is thrice dead is not an unnecessarily barbarous method ol making away with bad men. It is a matter of common knowledge that, in nine cases out of ten, where an attempt is made to braek a man's neck by letting him fall with hi < weight on a rope attached to that part of the pe son, the merciful intent of the execu tioner is defeated by the slipping of the knot, and that there ensues a death by tor ture, to wit, by strangulation. Now wh'le breaking the neck by a single jerk, as the law intends, is one of the least inhuman methods of taking life, strangulation is one of the most dreadful sources of Oriental cruelty and re venge. To stop the breath without at (he same time depriving the victim of conscious ness, is to inflict protracted torment beyond the power of the imagination to realize. It may be doubte.l whether all of Torquemada's refined cruelties did, on the whole, succeed in inflicting more exquisite suflering than that which accompanies death by strangulation. Hanging, therefore, instead of being such a punishment as a civilized nation would nat urally adopt for its worst criminals is really a more barbarous one than those in use among the most brutal savages. It will, we think, be universally admitted that the laws of this Slate do η :t contemplate torture as any essential part of a capital sen tence, Deprivation of life is regarded as an adequate penalty for any offense, and a man who is compelled, at the law's behest, to pass into another state of existence is presumed to have sat'sfied the last requiiements of the outraged laws. All the circumstances of ter ror and pain attending an execution are merely incidental, and might, so far as possi bl ·, be removed without at all changing the essential character of the puniihmenl. There are many of us who contend that death itself, without the added cruelty of torture, is a pen alty society has no l ight, ui.der ordinary cir cumstances, to enforce ; and however much difference of opinion there may be on this point, there can be few to dispute the prepo sition thai no suffering not necessarily at tending the infliction of the ext.eme penalty of the law, should be inflicted. That there are η score of less cruel methods of taking life than strangulation will not be disputed. The pi'.llotine, the use of anaesthetic poisons and ι hooting each affords a iess barbarous way of ridding society of its dangerous members. Even the terrible Spanish garrote, which also hills by strangulation, affords a quicker and hence more meiciful release from torture than the gallows. Undoubtedly there Was onca a theory that the public exhibition of the writhings, muscular contractions and grinaces of a man undergo ing strangulation was calculated to exeit a salutary influence by striking terror to the hearts of the large number of iuterested spec tators assembled to witness it. But the har dening and brutalizing effect of the scene was nt length found to bj so marked and unmis takable, that the false theory has long since been abandoned. By express command of the law only twelve persons are now admitted to witness an execution as spectators, and they must not be persons who are supposed to need the influence of such a scene to deter them from the commission of crime. Oub readers are already apprised of the fact that the Brotherhood of Locomotive Engineers in Missouri have organized a strike, stopped work and gone about tearing up the track of the St. Louis, Kansas City and Northern Kai'way. By the way of diversion they have thrown several trains and many engines into the ditches by placing obstruc tions on the road, thus making themselves criminals of the darkest character. And what is all this anarchy about? Simply this and nothing more : The officers of the rail road employed an engineer who was not rec. ogmzea as a memoer 01 tue .brotherhood, aud proving a good engine driver, they could Dot discharge bim at the demand of the or ganization. There was no question of wage?, no charge of any lack of skill, no personal objection to the mm. It was simply be cause he was not a member of the Brother hood. To the honor of the organization, the Chief of the Brotherhood states that the strike and consequent riotous proceedings is the work of a subordinate division, in viola tion of its rules and not sanctioned by the officers of the national organization. The full vote of New Hampshire for Gov ernor, foots up as follows: Straw (Rep.) 34,023; Weston (Dem.) 32,022: Bla;kmer (Prohib.) 1059; Mason (Lib. Rep,) 698— leaving Governor Straw a clear majority over all of 244. After the vacancies are filled by the Legis lature the Republicans will have 4 of the 5 Councillors, 9 of the 12 Senators and about 60 majority in the House. In tbe first Con gressional District, Small (Rep.) has some P^al11' for Coagress; iu the Second, Third Park 19 P,ura,ity> an(i in the 400 plurality'' to elected by about Senob CA^~r— nations on the establishment οιμΓ 'β republic, says: "Three , have proved fruitless—first in isi2 b^i ereation of a democratic monarchy ·' , ly in 1830, by a parlia . cntary monarchy" and lastly iu 1869, by the establishment of an elective monarchy. It is impossible not to recognize that had the monarchical institu tion been deeply rooted in the habits of the nation it could not have fallen through the conspiracies of a party or the speeches de livered fiom the tribune." A Philadelphia jury recently gave a ver diet in iavor of the plaintifT in a case where a party sued the "Kensington Bank to recover $30.000 in Government bonds stolen from a box deposited for safe keeping. The bond» were stolen when the bauk was robbed iu 1871. Tbe decision is of considerable inter est to backing institutions. If in any section of the country there is a body of seventy odd respectable gentlemen who attract less attention just now than the Unitt-d states Senate, wo buven't curiosity enough to inquire where it can be found. For steady talk the case of stupid Mr. Caldwell forms a topic. Strange as it may seem, it is said that Senators are distinguishing them selvej by eloquent speeches on the subject of five hours duration. The Senate may not be aware of the fact, but the average intelli gence of the nation came to the conclusion six weeks ago that in the election of Mr. Cald well, members of th« Kansas Legislature were purchased in the same way that cattle are in the open market and consequently that he should be expelled. To say that he cannot be expelled because he appears with a certificate of election in due form, is to virtu ally declare that hereafter where legislatures can be found venal enough, the mau who has the largest b~nk account can be electe 0 £ the highest deliberative body of the Repubhc. The lawyers of the Senate may be trouble to find a precedent and ultraStates' ^con sciences may be troubled about Mr Cald well's matter, but the character of the Sen and the purity of the elective franchise should stand for something. The great coal famine in Engian 1 has led to the adoption of various devices to fill the place of this prime staple. Among other things chalk which is so abundant in England has been found to be combustible when mixed in alternate layers of coal in grates, although it does not work well in furnaces. A gloricus foundation is aiso be ng laid tor entertaining newspaper paragraphs by the employment of petroleum for heating pur poses. Our British journalistic cousins must view with lively satisfaction the pros pect for a flourishing crop of kerosene inci dents. They will lighten their toils essen tially by procuring full files of American jour nals for a year or two back and reproducing the genial changes whic'i have been rung on this prolific theme. The best talent in America has been employed in devising varied and racy forms of statement of the re sults which follow the use of this particular destructive agent. Nitroglycerine, gunpow der, steam, whirlwinds, earthquakes and Credit Mobilier sink into insignificance before the ravages of this devastating fiend. We aie quite reconciled to have its scene of action transferred to England. About two weeks since a mere lad some where in Maryland shot a girl of tender years because she was not tender enough to recip rocate his "passion." This tragedy is now repeated in Syracuse, JNcw ïork. In tens last case a young man aged twenty-one mur dered a yirl ot fourteen and in attempting to make his escape yjumping on board a mov ing train, fell on the track and was instantly killed. It either of these young murderers had come to trial the plea of "emotional in sanity" would have been made in their behalf. There would be very few of these tragic mur ders if these foolish young people were kept from reading the love and murder stories by which their foolish imaginations are inflamed to such terrible deeds. Explanation of the Free Hlsrh Schools. Augusta, March 19,1873. To the Editor of the Press: Allow 'ne to offer the following expression ill relation to the "Free High Sclioçl" act, es pecially with reference to amounts necessary to be raised by any town, district, or districts, to secure a certain gratuity from the State. First,—The object in establishing the Free High School system on the present basis was to secure "superior education", at tbe ex pense of property, one half to be paid by the State, one half by the town. The first ques tion, thereto · to be determined by the State will be, how much has any town actually expended for "instruction in said school" for the current year. This amount will appear in the return made under oath by the Supei intending School Committee to the State Su perintendent of common schools on or be fore December first. Suppose this amount to be $1000 actually expended* for instruction, meanirg by this the salaries of teachers in cluding board, nothing more—this amount then is an obligation of the t-wn, to be met as follows, one half, $500, by a sp;cial appro priation on the part of the town, and one half, $500, by gratuity from the Slate. Second. The actual expenditures having been determined, before the State proceeds to defray one half of the expense thus incurred, the second inquiry wi'.l be whether the town has made provision for paying its half by special appropriation, besides the ordinary re quirements of the per capita tax. This will appear by the same csrtified statement as above. This half is the sum required to be raised by the several towns. Therefore a town raising $500 will have $1000 to expend for high school purposes, or in other words the town will receive from the State as much as it raises, (not exceeding $500 on the part ot the State) provided the towu has expend ed in instruction twice the sum raised for "Free High School." Illustration.—The town of Gray raises $500 for a free high school. Suppose this sum expended for instruction in a spring term of school. Gray will pay for this. In the fall the town may have another term of school, costing the same and this the State will pay for in December. If the term closes prior to December, the town can pay the cost of instruction by drafts on its own treasury, by temporary loaus or other wise, and reimburse itself or cancel loan by State warrant when received. If Gray stopped with its spring term of school, it woul I re ce've into its treasury $250 from the State, which, without, another term of school, would be diverted from the original intention and the youth of Gray be deprived of the extra term of school. Every town, therefore, should expend twice the sum it raises and re ceive from the State the tame amount as it raises. The view that if Gray raises $500 it can re ceive but $250 from the State, is not in accor dance with the intentions of those who orig inated the "free high school" plan, nor with the words of the act. "shall be entitled tn rp ceive from tbe State one-half ot the amount actually expended'' (not raised) "for instruc tiou"; is unjust to the State, in that tbe gratuity of the State is not expended for edu cation ; unjust to the citizens ot the town, in that they are thus taxed for twice the sum necessary; and finally is unjust to the young men and women, in that they secure only half the possible school facilities. Very respectfully, your obedient servant, Warren Johnson. Washington Matters. JUDICIAL· DECISION CONCERNING CONFISCA TED PROPERTY. An interesting decision in a confiscated property case was made here Tuesday in the supreme court of the district in the case of rhe heirs of C. S, Wallach, against John Van Riiwick. Thefacts are that 'heproperty af the late 0. S, Wallach was libelled under the con fiscation act and his e tate was purchased by the defendant. In 1866, after the return of Mr. Wallach, be and his wife conveyed *he property to Yan Fiswick in fee simple. Two years thereafter Wa'lacb was restored to the full enjoyment of nitizensiiip, and he died. The suit was brought by the heirs to recover possession of tbe property, mainly on tbe ground that tbe estate therein of the defend ant was terminated upon the deatu of their ancestor, and that by reason of his share in the late rebellion their ancestor was disabled by tbe provisions of tbe act of Congress and the decree of confiscation above retèrred to from doing any act which could legally affect tbe ieversion iry fee in said property. To ibis bill the defendant demurred generally, and the question of the ancestor's co npeten cy execute a deed wa3 raised. The court decided that at tie time of making the above mentioned convcyance to Mr. Van Riswick, inii a"ach possessed a teversionary interest mil/» „pr"J*;rty; that he was competent to bro„»htVunic<J"vey.a,.lce' and the bil1- bein8 dismissed.

Thus far no hostility has been manifested iu the Senate to any nominations, except that of Col. Casey, reappointed as Collector of the port of New Orleans. Senator Wes of Louisiana, who opposes the coniirniation of Col. Casey, does so because he thinks tne large oatronage of the Custom House Orleans is monopolized by a corrupt faction of the Republican party there. ILLICIT DISTILLERIES. The Internal Revenue Bureau has received information of the recent destruction m the Fourth Tennessee District of a number of illicit distilleries containing seven stills, five worms, 2500 tubs, 16,000 gallons of mash and beer, 140 bushels of meal, filty bushels of corn, thirty-one bushels of malt, 140 gal lons singliags and thirty gallons whiskey. More than eighty of the above class of dis lleries have been suppressed in that district during about seven m >nths by the assessor who accomplished the destruction above men ioned. Mice and Alltgatobb in a Lady's Stom ach. The Lexington (Ky.) Press tells a story of a lady residing in Frankfort who had been very sick for some time, and so very strange were her symptoms as to utterly set at naught the skill of the physician?. She suffered from general debility, became frightfully emaciated, and yet possessed a most voracious appetite, and people began to account for the latter phe nomenon by the old superstitious method of as signing the cause to the possession of an "eat ing wolf." The mystery was solved a fow days ago, when, after a sick spell and a violent fit of retching, she ejected from her stomach a mouse (dead),and shortly after a living alligator of small dimensions. Some of the physicians have expressed an opinion that there are more of these animals remaining iu the lady's stom ach, and that they are being constantly gener ated there. But as to bow they had their ori gin there we have not beard that any one has ventured to risk an assertion or explanation. Decision in an Interesting Case.—At Springfield, Mass., on Wednesday, the case of J. H. Sharon of Holyoke, who was sued by Ezra Miner on account of his family having contracted the small pox iu consequence of living in a house rented of Sharon, was de cided. The jury brought in a verdict in favor of the plaintiffs, as follows: Ezra Miner, S325; Ezra Miner, Jr., 8125; Agnes Miner $450. The award to the girl was heavier than the others, as she bears evident traces of the disease, and her health, it is said, is "perma nently wrecked" thereby. The case will go to the Supreme Court on exceptions. Leeches Checkmated -Ex-Secretary Bout well's decision that drafts for claims against the government issued from the Treasury De partment should be made payable and deliver ed to the claimants, has not been acceptable to claim agents and attorneys, who used to obiain It J tl_ J A.

A Baugor bridegroom refused to so up to the altar because the bride had adopted the new weakness of parting her hair on one side. A sharp war of words followed, which resulted in a declaration on the part of the angry youth that he had taken a firm stand and that the hair must be re-dressed or he would never look upon it again.

Sometimes medicines that will stop a cough will of ten occasion the death of the patient. It locks up the liver, stops the circulation of the blood, hemorrhage follows, and, in fact, clogging the action of the very organs that caused the cough. Liver complaint and dyspepsia are the causes of two-thiids of the cases of consumption. Many are now complaining with dull pain in the side, the bow els sometimes costive and sometimes to loose, tongue coated, paiu in the shoulder blade, feeling sometimes very restless, and at other times drowsy ; the food that is aken lies heavily on the stomach, accompani ed with acidity and belching of wind. These symp toms usually originate irom a disordered condition of the stomach or a torpid liver. Persons so affected, if they take one or two heavy colds, and if the cough in these cases be suddenly stopped, the lungs, liyer and stomach clog, and remain torpid and inactive, and before the patient is aware of his situation, the lungs are a mass of sores, and ulcerated, and death is the inevitable result. Schenck's Pulmonic Syrup is an expectorant which does not contain any opium, nor anything calculated to check a cough suddenly. Schenck's Seaweed tonic diss» ν the food, mixes with the gastric juice of the sto ach, digests easily, nourishes the system, and créât a healthy circula tion of the blood. When the els are costive, skin shallow, and the patient 13 a billious habit, Schenck's Mandrake Pills are required. These medicines are prepaired by Dr. J. H.
